The Friday Flashback.

Well it is six weeks since our last Friday Flashback and this one comes from January 2009. When we originally posted it, some of you were unsure what an airing cupboard is. It is the cupboard where the boiler that supplies all our hot water is kept. It has slatted shelves so the heat can circulate in there, and mum keeps all her clean laundry in there that is waiting to be ironed, and all the towels so they are toasty warm.
This post is called:

MY SECRET HIDING PLACE.

When it has been very cold lately it is hard to find somewhere good to keep warm. The other day I found the airing cupboard door open and before you could say 'Where's Flynn?' I was in there. Oh it is lovely with all the nice clean warm towels to snuggle on. Nobody knows about this secret place.

Uh-oh, I think I may have been spotted. Surely she wouldn't make me move. If I keep very still and quiet, she may think she imagined seeing me in here.

Aww go on mum, it's cold out there. You wouldn't make a poor freezing kitty get out of such a nice warm bed would you? Thanks mum! She let me stay.

I can only imagine how toasty warm that must have been. Do you still hide there?

What a great place to has a nap!! You look very comfy Flynn we are so glad your mum let you stay. But is probably not a good idea to publish your secrets on your blog, you guys are VERY popular.
Stay warm boys!

Flynn, We would be all over that spot! The Baby is a master at opening doors...she's a crab, but she's handy sometimes.
We're glad your Mum let you stay.
Mommy wants to know what an "iron" is...MOL!

Ooooh an airing cupboard! We like the sound of that. As we live in the tropics though, every cupboard is warm - and we like to lie in them too - esp the ones with clean, soft clothes and sheets!

Pablo said...

That is THE most awesome sleeping place EVER. Ever.

The Whiskeratti said...

What a pawsome hiding place! All warm and toasty and secret.

Cory said...

What a cool place to hang out and sleep! Jonesie says she wants to teleport over. She got caught in a major rainstorm this afternoon and she was soaking wet and hollering to come in...sleeping on some warm towels with you would make her happy.

MoMo said...

What a wonderful idea! Too bad we don't have one, otherwise I would have been there all winter.

Angel and Kirby said...

That sounds like a very cozy place to nap!

Flynn, it looks like you found a great place to nap - you look so cozy!!

We don't have an airing cupboard - wish we did! In the winter though, our Mom has a mattress heating pad, when that sucker's on we won't leave the bed!!

Sammy and Andy said...

Aren't towels some of the greatest things to snuggle down in!!!!!!!

Our mama had an airing closet in Ireland, but has never seen one here in the States.....in the winter she wishes she had that airing closet here, but not in our terribly hot and humid summers.

We love y'all..........

DailyGs said...

O mai goodness! Why don't we have airing cupboards here in the US? They are positively brilliant!

What a heavenly place! We wish we had one. A kitty"s paradise!

CCL Wendy said...

I hate to tell you Flynn, but you're quite easy to spot, as long as the door is open to the cupboard. With your bright orange furs against the red towels, you are like a beacon. I'm sure your Mom didn't mind you keeping warm in there.
